Note: This language is part of Point Park University's Policy Prohibiting Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence and Stalking.
TITLE IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and therefore violates Title IX.
Point Park University has appointed several trained individuals to oversee the implementation of all
Title IX obligations, including prevention and awareness programs, training employees on their rights and duties under Title IX, investigating any reports of possible sexual misconduct, and providing resolution for all violations of Title IX.
For information about Title IX compliance, please contact the University’s Title IX coordinator, Elizabeth H. Rosemeyer at 412-392-3980 or email@example.com. You may also contact any deputy Title IX coordinator, listed below.
Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators
The Title IX coordinator oversees the University’s overall response to sexual misconduct, relationship violence and stalking. The coordinator, along with the deputy coordinators, can accept reports of sexual misconduct, relationship violence and stalking and will take actions necessary to end any reported discrimination and to prevent its recurrence. The coordinators also serve as decision makers regarding any sanctions or remedies imposed in the event a violation of the Policy Prohibiting Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking has occurred.
